Description

This coat is made of brown denim, and for the lining I have used lightweight cotton fabric. It’s based on pattern #117 Burda 02/2008.
I think it’s a nice combination with the brown fabric and the red thread and the buttons. It was a lot of work to sew the lines through the denim and the lining in the right place at the waist, but it was worth the effort.. I have used rubberband between the tunnels at the waist :)

Material Notes

Denim and cotton fabric for the lining.

    Very nice coat! The way you decorated the coat with red thread is winsome and pretty original; the buttons make the outfit a little girlish – you look younger than ever:-)

      Hello Biloute, I tried to look it up on the internet, but there was only sewing discussion about this trench coat.., I’m sorry! Hope you will find a similar pattern, because it’s very nice. I’m glad you like it :-)

    It is really a special coat! This pattern is just perfect and your version great with the topstiching. I want to make it some time too!

      That’s so kind of you to say :) The coat in the Burda magazine was made of a very lightweight fabric, so you should have a look..

      Oh, I have had many looks at this gorgeous model in the past. It has been in my wish list for many years but haven’t made it because I have too many coats already!! And I am also afraid about the added elastic, I haven’t tried this before! But some time I will make it for sure. Your fantastic coat just gave me the motivation!!

    Very nice coat! Cute idea of adding red topstitching on the brown denim. You make me want to start working on my coat. Lovely work, my dear friend!
